not overflowing with texas-sized confidence. >> aun understatement as it were. perry has made a turn to really court the evangelical and christian conservative votes. his new slogan is faith, jobs, and fre dedom. the general thinking is this is not going to be a candidacy that lasts that far into the future. >> televangelist clearly.ç he has a bright few tiuture as televangeli televangelist. he can get up there and talk about guns and gays and get on with it. >> i want to bring you in here. gary johnson is expected to announce within the hour he's seeking the libertarian nomination and there's been a lot of talk about a third party candidate happening in this race. who does this hurt more, the white house or the republican party? >> well, first of all, breaking news, gary johnson is going to be a write in on the libertarian ticket. we will all support him on one important plank. >> these assumptions. go ahead. >> i think that hit has shown that almost exclusively that incumbents get hurt by third-party candidacies, whether the candidacies come from the right, whether they come from the left,
conservative activists in texas's feeling about rick perry and the rope that rick perry would be the standard bearer for the tea party. i mean, conservatives in texas have a lot of issues with rick perry. they hated that highway that he tried to build through the state, maded the gardacil decision. >> the hpv vaccine. >> i thought that was actually one of the things that was most devastated and effective bachmann's attack on that. but i think it helped sort of discredit this kind of -- in soft focus he seemed like the perfect right wing standard bearer. then as you zeemd in that seems less and less the case. that was the only niche that he had going for him, that he could occupy. >> the job creation thing which sort of got unwound if you looked closer at what kind of jobs he created. >> i don't think the republican primary voters care about this. >> about job creation? >> i don't think that's the thing that's driving them. i really don't. >> i think what really hurt him was the observation someone made that he makes george bush jr. look like a rhodes scholar. that he's so lame. and you just c
no records of him voting. he lived in texas where he had to pay a poll tax and pass a literacy test. what we should be doing is moving as far as we can away from anything that would jeopardize voting. so you know, hopefully the people will put pressure on these governors and state legislature to stop it. >> congressman emanuel cleaver, thanks for being with us. >> good to join you. >> a plan b for the plan b pill, that's next on "now." >>> i'm chuck todd, coming up on "andrea mitchell reports." president obama hits republicans on the hill and campaign trail. we'll break down the latest war of words there. what he said about kathleen sebelius's decision. romney ready to rumble with newt? our press secretary joins us. we'll see you at the top of the hour for "andrea mitchell reports." that's good morning, veggie style. hmmm [ male announcer ] for half the calories -- plus veggie nutrition. could've had a v8. nice, huh? yeah. you know what else is nice is all the savings you can get on cruze and traverse over there. oh! that's my beard.

in the works, but fighting appears to have put us back at square one. texas republican congressman blake farnhold tweeted over the weekend, my wife bought a pink tree. obviously, i did not get home from d.c. soon enough. saying nothing whether pink christmas trees are bad or not, joining us with the latest on the payroll tax cut fight, luke russert. luke, good day. >> good day, alex. how are you? zpl i am good. i am not one for the sports metaphors, so i will let you clarify. did boehner effectively call an audible here? is that what is going on on capitol hill? >> i would go a step further. let's say that mitch mcconnell was the coach of the gop here and they agree today a play and went to the line of scrimmage and quarterback boehner realized his team was out of position and started calling a huge time-out to restructure themselves. if you're john boehner realizing that on a conference call yesterday, the house gop would not pass this two-month extension, 90% of support was negotiated by mitch mcconnell, who i don't think anyone would say is a progressive liberal, if you will, trying t
. >> the supreme court will be taking up the issue of redistricting in texas which is1 a battle largely centered around minority communities and states gaining four seats because of population growth and 85% has been in the minority communities but the districting plan put forward by the legislature would decrease the number of minority communities -- would decrease the districts from 11 to 10. which seems like clear jerry manderring. >> under the voting rights act, the department of justice had a role in ensuring -- that is the one area, who knows what this court will do. that's one area that's been better. >> your point about democracy is interesting, gerri mannedering denies the legitimacy of government. we've had this incredible swing between the private and public sector. government -- people need to feel they can trust government decision, otherwise we'll go into several more years of -- >> the supreme court is taking up this along with few very incendiary topics which we'll talk about more after the break. what will the new year bring for health care? we'll talk about those and more next
-old picked up a gun owned by his visiting relative, shot and killed a 5-year-old in the apartment. in texas six people were shot to death in their home while opening their christmas gifts by a man wearing a santa suit. and in southern california a soldier who just returned from afghanistan was shot in the spine at his homecoming party while trying to break up a fight. he is paralyzed and in critical condition. i think all of these stories bring up the inevitable question, what are we doing about gun laws in this country? are they too porous? are they not strict enough? or is that all wrong and it's just these are random acts of violence? i think that it's important to note that you know, a "new york times" report on gun rights found that in north carolina 2,400 permit holders had felony or misdemeanor convictions in the last five years ten had committed murder or manslaughter, eight of those with a grngs 60 had committed weapon re weapon-related assaults. i think there's a lot of questions here. one is do we do we not need stricter gun control laws in this country? do we need to revisit how
